    Hello,

    I would like to use peoples artwork (paintings and stuff), and it's hard for me to reach to them for their approval

    So if I post their picture on my social media and give them credentials (their name and idk) is that ok with copyright?

    None of these people won't sue me whatever anyway, but I want to make this thing full legit coz I'm going white hat on this thing,
    So I'm interested how does this copyright thing work

    Thanks :)

    Post all those pictures with proper credit and you should do just fine. If any copyright owner contacts, just put his/her image down. Also have a disclaimer page saying you have no control over pictures submitted by users and if anyone have issues, they can contact and sort out.

    hth :)
